Miramax has inked a deal taking over global television and digital licensing for Revolution Studio’s film library, including all titles in the Morgan Creek library Revolution recently acquired.
The deal, announced on the eve of international TV market MIPCOM in Cannes, extends Miramax’s domestic deal with Revolution. Miramax has handled licensing for Revolution titles in the U.S. since 2012. Miramax will handle international rights on all Morgan Creek titles immediately and will take up international rights on Revolution titles as they begin to revert back to Revolution.
Revolution’s founder Joe Roth sold the production company to Fortress Investments earlier this year for a reported $230 million.
“We are excited to take this next step in our relationship with Miramax, which has proven to be a formula for success on the domestic front,” said Revolution CEO Vince Totino, who announced the deal together with Revolution COO Scott Hemming and Miramax executive vp, worldwide TV sales Joe Patrick.
Among the more than 40 films included in the deal are such titles as Black Hawk Down, America’s Sweethearts, XXX, Maid in Manhattan and 13 Going on 30.
The Morgan Creek titles Revolution acquired include Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Last of the Mohicans.
Revolution and Miramax did not disclose the terms of the agreement.
